I'm pleased to report I have two new appointments.
As I have reported for some time, my appointment at City, University of London was scheduled to end on 31 October this year, when EU funding for my work on the Horizon 2020 Combating Financial Fraud and Empowering Regulators (COFFERS) project came to an end. However, I learned this week that City is extending my contract on a one day a week basis to next July so that I can complete research that they might wish to submit to the university REF appraisal scheme. This is the work I am doing on tax spillovers with Andrew Baker at Sheffield University, on which I will have more to say over the coming year.
In addition, I also learned this week that I have been appointed as a Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Anglia Ruskin University. This will be to work with Professor Aled Jones and his colleagues at the Global Sustainability Institute at the University. Some of the work I will be doing with the Corporate Accountability Network will have links to Anglia Ruskin. I am grateful to them for this opportunity.
I might add that I am also in discussion with another university about an appointment in another discipline. But news on that will have to follow if it happens.
In the meantime fundraising for the work of the Corporate Accountability Network continues as I will definitely be working in a civil society context again before the year is out.
